You will feel like part of a family when you join us as a Night Care Assistant at Caer Gwent. You will provide person-centred support for our residents that requires empathy and compassion, respecting that feelings matter the most.

You will assist in the delivery of effective care which is responsive to individuals’ needs, and in accordance with Guild Care policies and procedures and the principles of best practice. You and your co-workers will help each other get things done, whilst getting the chance to talk and learn about each other.

About our Caer Gwent nursing home

Caer Gwent combines superb residential living with 24-hour expert nursing care, supporting individuals with complex health conditions, particularly focusing on palliative (i.e. end of life) support.

Our home has a high staff-to-resident ratio, with a versatile team built around residents’ needs. As well providing around-the-clock nursing care, we have dedicated Health & Wellbeing Coordinators who deliver regular and stimulating activities catered to individuals’ interests.

Opened in 1988 by the Earl of March, Caer Gwent is an elegant care home set in a quiet residential area of Worthing. Our home features spacious and airy surroundings, beautiful furnishings and well-tended landscaped gardens.

Benefits of working at Guild Care

  • An extra little thank you in your pay. Working nights you can earn up to £9.90 at the weekends.
  • Spending more time with our Residents. With fewer people visiting the home, you will have more time to provide care that fits the needs of our Residents. If they want to chat, you’re more likely to have time.
  • Peaceful and relaxed environment. Most residents are sleeping and there are fewer visitors. You’ll be busy monitoring and assisting residents, but without the noise and interruptions of the daytime.
  • Good team spirit. You and your co-workers help each other get things done, whilst getting the chance to talk and learn about each other.
  • More family time. Face it, everything happens during the day. School activities, medical appointments, and hair stylists are easier to schedule.
  • When you join our team, we will discuss with you what’s on offer and your career aspirations. You will meet our friendly, supportive Learning and Development Team and join our in-house trainers in our fantastic training facilities.
